CPR II Annual Brazil Mediation Congress
Resolving Conflicts in a More Transparent World

On April 25, 2014, CPR in association with CAMARB held Brazil’s second Business Mediation Congress in Minas Gerais. The event featured speakers from the corporate, law firm, academic and mediator communities. The Fundação Dom Cabral hosted the Congress and provided logistical support.  The goal of the Congress was to continue to raise awareness in Brazil as to the availability and suitability of mediation as a method for resolving business disputes. Topics  included an overview of how mediation is being used by organizations in Brazil, presentations on dispute boards in construction contracts and online dispute resolution, as well as an interactive session on ethical issues arising in mediation.  Prof. Kazuo Watanabe gave the keynote address.  Attendees participated enthusiastically in the Congress and a lively debate ensued as to whether mediation would supplant arbitration as a dispute resolution mechanism.
